Filmed in Scotland, CITADEL is directed by Ciarán Foy and stars “SxSW it boy” Aneurin Barnard (who also stars in the SxSW film “Hunky Dory”), James Cosmo and Wunmi Mosaku.
Based on director Ciarán Foy’s real life experiences with being violently attacked and his subsequent life as an agoraphobic, CITADEL is a very personal journey.
The dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he nowfinds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang, who seem intent on taking his baby daughter.
Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, he discovers that tobe free of his fears, he must finally face the demons of his past and enter the one place that he fears the most…the abandoned tower block known as the CITADEL.
Further tidbit of information, CITADEL’s poster (featured above) is one of the first ever to utilize the revolutionary new Aurasma app. By simply holding an android up to the poster, it will reveal exclusive clips from the film. http://www.aurasma.com/
